Having just had his Men's world slalom record of 1 ¼ buoys at 43 feet off confirmed by the International Water Ski Federation's Technical Committee, U.S. water ski pro Chris Parrish has once again raised the bar on that record, getting 2 buoys at 43 feet off June 4 at the H2Osmosis Sports Grand Opener at Trophy Lakes in Johns Island, S.C.

He elected not to ski in Sunday's third round. Parrish's mark of 1 ¼ at 43 off eclipsed the eight-year-old mark of 1 at 43 off that was shared by U.S. athletes Jeff Rodgers and Jamie Beauchesne, and Great Britain's Andy Mapple.
